This is gonna be true love. I can feel it.
I’ve been to the voice specialist four times since seeing I was healed, each time telling myself that if all was clear, I’d share my excitement. I’m following through on the deal I made with myself before taking another look yesterday (healed, just need to accept it.) This is getting VERY exciting.
My fun contribution to our fundraising efforts! I’m so happy to be a part of this team!
I just had to tell you about this great new item we will be raffling off soon!!
We call it the “Secret Fortune” Paracord Bracelet, and it was invented by our street team member Chanda P. She tries to give me credit but all I did was throw out one teensy tiny idea… she did all the rest.
These things are already creating a buzz within our team. Inside the bracelet, there is a ribbon woven through the center that has secret JM lyrics on it!! You never know what those lyrics are, unless someday you unravel the bracelet!
Those of you who are familiar with paracord bracelets know that they are meant to be unraveled in case of emergency… in this case, it would be a JM-related emergency that only John’s words of wisdom can fix!
We know that these are going to be very popular with you folks! Chanda is currently making a few prototypes that we will be raffling off in February, and after that we will probably take some special orders. You can ask for one in your favorite color, and with your favorite JM lyrics inside.
These are NOT available for “sale.” They are only available in exchange for set donations to The Isaac Foundation. We’ve already had people asking if they could buy one… but sorry folks, this is a fundraising item!!

Efforts are underway to persuade Johnson & Johnson to cover the cost of an important and promising clinical trial that Isaac and other children with MPS VI really, really need.
Please use your Tumblr and Twitter voices to help them out….
Please Johnson & Johnson back this clinical trial for children like Isaac with MPS VI.
That little headbutt in the second one gave me diabetes.

Dear Ann Coulter of the Day:After Ann Coulter referred to President Obama as a retard in a tweet during Monday night’s presidential debate, Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens penned her this:
Dear Ann Coulter,
Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow. So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult? I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow. I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you. In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night. I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have. Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next. Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift. Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more. After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me. You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV. I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash. Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor. No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much. Come join us someday at Special Olympics. See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged. A friend you haven’t made yet, John Franklin Stephens Global Messenger Special Olympics Virginia
